Do you like Facebook bootcamp or Google team matching better?

Which do you prefer?
Consider:
- Should companies copy FB's approach or G's?
- Is this difference a factor if you get offers from FB and G?

**To clarify the poll options: FB's bootcamp is after start date, not just after offer**

    The problem is that all of FB's teams are bad. But you can choose.

      True. Even if you pick a good team starting out, it'll be reorged into a bad one.

    Facebook’s way made me nervous. It kinda makes me feel that I didn’t make it yet and that there’s going to be another round of interviews. And, since I left my previous company, there’s no backup plan if I don’t get matched with a team.

      And yet it happens to be like another interview according to your own words

      It’s really not. I’ve been bombarded with offers from great teams. Every HM was basically just trying to sell their team and project to me.

      Krololo - only managers who're new at FB make the mistake of treating Bootcamp as a second interview. They learn very quickly.

    It's funny someone even asks it. It's obvious - Facebook approach is better for employees, Google approach is better for the company

      OP
      It's obvious from the poll results! Haha

    Do Facebook teams get to see your interview notes and such? Or are all those things kept within the hiring committee?

      No manager at FB will ever get to see your interview notes. Unless they interviewed you

    Picking a team in the end of Facebook’s bootcamp- it has to be mutual, right?
    Are there anecdotes of new hires not being accepted by teams?

      Bootcamp isn't a second interview. It's mutual mostly in the sense that the team decides looking at your profile whether they want to reach out to you.
      Also, there's a huge supply-demand imbalance. There are a lot more openings than bootcampers.

    With the amount of posts here with people waiting in team matching queue with Google, it’s no brainer.

    There's no question. One pays you to match and the other doesn't.
